Chronic, uncomfortable itchiness around genital area, rash around pubic mound with smell. Reasons ?

Hi there, I am currently experience chronic, uncomfortable itchyness around my genital area. It first started with that I thought was thrush, so I got an over-the counter medicine for that. But I found the creams releaved my itchyness only periodically and stung a little when applied. As this has kept going, I have developed a rash around my pubic mound - looks like a lot of pimples / ingrown hairs which have become more and more itchy as it grows. I also have noticed that the skin becomes flaky and peels off. I have a little more discharge than usual, but havent noticed an abnormal smell.

Hi there,
i think things are not very clear and ofcourse its not possble for you to tell each and everything in detail.
Now there are two things in mind as i gathered according to your condition,
1:IT could have been a Yeast infection and the cream that you have bought over the counter may contain steroids and after the application there is a steroid induced acne,which you have reffered as "lots of pimples". so if that is the case then you need to stop the cream.
2:You might have developed a condition called Lichen Simplex Chronicus in which the skin becomes thickend,dry and roughened due to constant rubbing and itching.
At this point i think you need to see a doctor so that he can have a good look at the rash and ssoaciated factors and proceed further.
The only advise i would like to give you is to apply White Petroleum Jelly at the sites regularly and take Tablet Zyrtec 10mg once a day before going to bed.
thanks very much, and all the bset.
